beach

The beautiful beach at Kildonan, which has lots of lovely rock formations with grass surrounding them, the beach is sandy and shallow (Ideal for swimming which I did in between shots) quite a quiet beach, no other people were here despite it being a very hot day.

Excellent for both sunsets and sunrises, the nearby harbour provides plenty of photo opportunities, can be busy during the summer months, also very windy so a steady tripod is recommended for long exposures.

I favour winter months to avoid the crowds. That way I can photograph without herds of sightseers in my viewfinder. The pier is open 24/7 and is perfect for wide angle lenses.

Car park is on the cliff tops but there are excellent photo opportunities if you walk (quite steep) down to the rocky beach.

Beautiful spot - These wide angle pictures taken at low tide and just after sunrise in January. There is a concrete causeway to the lighthouse that gets covered at High Tide. Best for Autumn to winter with low light on the rocks.

This is a great location anytime of the day or year. However, getting there just before or after high tide (so check them first - look at times for Port Talbot and Porthcawl to get an idea), along with a sunset / sunrise will give some great shots.

Whitby is a wonderfully old-fashioned seaside port on the North Yorkshire coast. The pier offers many photographic opportunities, usually best captured at dawn. This location suits long exposures and a minimalist style, so remember your ND filters.
